Litter pick 

We pick litter twice a year on the weekends that the clocks change. We meet on the Saturday at 09:30 at the Village Hall in order to hand out equipment and allocate where to pick.

Most of the litter is thrown from passing cars,  the top of Green Lane is usually worst.   It is generally accepted that people are less likely to drop litter if a place looks well cared for - so it is important to keep on top of the problem.

Large items of fly tipping should be left in place and reported as fly tipping to South Norfolk Council so that SNC can investigate for evidence.  Bags may contain needles, which could stick into your leg if picked up. 

Bags of collected litter will be picked up from the locations marked by arrows on the map below (end of School Lane near to A47 and junction of Little Melton Rd and Burnthouse Lane).
